Wildlife officials say it's a sure-fire way to get an estimated 100 black and turkey vultures from roosting in the neighborhood...

No, there's always the "case of beer and pellet rifle" method.

Semi-related CSB: Apparently in the deserts of the Southwest, the way they track leaks in gas pipelines is to pump in the smell of carrion and then look for the buzzards.

I find that neat.

Um, won't the dead birds smell something awful after they thaw out?
 
2013-03-12 11:01:06 AM
"They just glide all around, all day long, I mean, just looking for something dead,"

Yeah, that's pretty much what carrion eaters do.
 
2013-03-12 11:28:07 AM
Because as we all know, buzzards HATE dead, rotting things.

Vultures may like to eat road kill but it turns out they don't like the sight of their own dead upside down.

So we leave a desecrated corpse of one of their own to send a message. Sick.

So America has become a priest-ridden people, I have an idea let's leave our little boys at the rectory without supervision.
 
2013-03-12 11:32:06 AM
I do the same to keep the strippers away.

At first I read the headline as "blizzard problem" and was confused.  Then I RTFA and came out not much better.

I wish they would bring this back. If it works for birds it should work for shoplifters, wifebeaters, unfit mothers and eagles fans

If I were driving around and suddenly came across a town where dead birds were hanging upside-down suspended from trees, I would not stop there. That would be deeply disturbing.

They eat their own dead.

As the article states, "Still, in densely
populated areas where they can thrive,
vultures pose a serious nuisance." We tried
something similar to eliminate the
nuisance of the local crack head
panhandlers where I live. We strung up
signs of where to get a job, in all of their
known habitats. To no avail. Although
some cowered and quaked at the job signs,
and some even invoked the mystical
gesture of the raised middle finger, (no
doubt meant to ward off the "evil eye" of
those job signs), our efforts failed. We still
couldn't walk down tiff street without
getting hit up for spare change or
cigarettes every few feet, and were indeed
spat upon when they were denied their self
ordained right of "give me what you've got"
Some of them cast magical words our way,
usually beginning with the all powerful "F".
Some locals said that perhaps our efforts
were too weak and we should invoke
stronger methods. Such as taking one of
their own and making them work. Again, as
the article states, "They don't like seeing
their own in that unnatural position." But
would that be enough to scare them away?
Probably not. Next step? "It turns out they
don't like the sight of their own dead upside
down."

I feel the same way about places that have effigies of dead guys nailed to crosses.

Try that shiat with a crow and your house will get attacked.  Those birds are vengeful.
 
2013-03-12 12:18:39 PM
What do those buzzards know that we don't?
 
2013-03-12 12:26:13 PM
Where are you going to string them up?  Under the dorsal guiding feathers?

Yep. That's Stephen King stuff, right there.


Especially dead vultures.

So don't be dead and it'll work out fine.

tired of doing all the heavy lifting around here *jeeze*

No, they're dead, so their noses are no longer working.

CSB: a flock of 75 of them used to roost near my neighborhood. In a dead tree. Across the street from a nursing home.

/bring out your dead!

Far cheaper and more effective I'd wager. BUT GUNS ARE SCARY.

It sounds stupid but it apparently works.

For some reason Vultures are spooked by dead vultures and they really do move along when they see one of their own hanging where they roost.  They don't even have to be 'fresh' kills.  The Game and Parks Commission here has used stuffed (taxidermy) birds with the same results.
 
2013-03-12 01:09:53 PM
Stupid tag unwarranted. Article cites experts who say it works.

Who knows better about killing very publicly to show a message than NJ?
